VisAO and the WFS got a much needed spring cleaning today. We also installed some new filters.
Jared and Alfio installed a new more powerful Y-stage motor. This motor has to lift the W-unit against gravity, and the old one was under-powered and so was failing. These motors are very powerful, even the old one, so it is very nerve racking to mess around with them. We had a stressful morning.
T.J. and Katie buttoned up Clio today.
The weather has been gorgeous, and we’re seeing lots of locals out and about.
Here’s the song of the day. We have spent so much time here it now feels like we’re coming home when we get off the plane in La Serena.
